Quality education is the foundation of our nation’s society and economy. We must place a priority on our public education system to ensure that all children attain the knowledge and skills they need to succeed in our changing world. On the federal level we must ensure that our communities have sufficient funding to give our students the tools they need to succeed, from technology to nutritious food to optimal—and safe—learning environments. Every student in America should feel safe walking into school each morning, and every parent should feel comfortable knowing their children are in a safe environment. As our nation grieves over the latest mass shooting in an American school, we need more than thoughts and prayers from Washington; we need action.
As a member and chair of the Westford School Committee, I have worked tirelessly at the local level to serve the needs of our students and teachers, finding solutions and solving problems, from addressing major infrastructure issues to ensuring adequate funding for special education programs.
As your Congressman, I will fight to ensure that every student has access to a quality education, regardless of where they live and what school they attend.
